Willie Nelson expands biodiesel business to South Carolina

| Friday, June 17, 2005

Country music legend Willie Nelson has expanded the sale of his BioWillie brand biodiesel beyond the Texas border.

BioWillie, a 20 percent blend of biodiesel, is now available at a Spinx Co. filling station in Greer, SC.

The station is the first along the Eastern seaboard to carry BioWillie, but it won’t be the last. Peter Bell, Nelson’s partner in the venture, said future plans are to have the product available at fueling stations along the East Coast from Miami, FL, to Rochester, NY.

“This is just the first step as we try to take the brand on a national basis,” he said.

BioWillie is already available at truck stops throughout Texas.
